ALCO Brochure Reports Engine Performance On Residual Fuel

A 17-page, four-color brochure reports on the testing program of an ALCO 16-cylinder POWER BOSS engine running on 400 SRI blended residual fuel.

In this newly announced publication (HF 977-3M) there is discussion of ALCO's experience with residual fuels in both current and older model engines; reasons for this test; basic considerations of the test; test engine build components; fuel used during the test; lube oil used during the test; test program; inspections during the test; special loads and tests; final inspection; lubricating oil; maintenance and conclusions.

Documented with four-color photographs of various components taken during certain phases of the performance test program, the brochure also includes laboratory heavy fuel system piping schematic; turbocharger water wash schematic and various charts and graphs concerned with the program.

Conclusions reached were very gratifying in proving the ALCO POWER BOSS engine's ability to operate on blended residual fuel.

Objectives were met with respect to both engine performance and endurance. The Model 251 POWER BOSS operating on a blended residual fuel can be expected to provide dependable service in customer applications while taking advantage of the reduced cost of these fuels.
